"Operation Nanhe Farishte": RPF Central Railway Rescues 1064 Children during April 2023 to March 2024

Railway Protection Force (RPF) is entrusted with the responsibility of security of railway property, passenger area and passengers. It is also discharging responsibility of rescuing children under “Operation Nanhe Farishte”.

RPF Central Railway has rescued 1064 children in coordination with Government Railway Police (GRP) and other frontline railway staff from railway station platforms over Central Railway during April 2023 to March 2024 under “Operation Nanhe Farishte”. This includes boys and girls reunited with their parents with the help of NGOs like Childline.
The children who come to the railway stations without informing their families as a result of some fight or some family issues or in search of better life or glamour of the city etc. are found by trained RPF personnel. These trained RPF personnel connect with the children, understand their problems and counsel them to reunite with their parents. Many of the parents express their deep gratitude and thankfulness for this noble service of the Railways.
